The Quran and legislated supplications are sufficient for nullifying magic

10-11-2007 | IslamWeb


Many people say that if a person whom you think may do magic to you enters your home, then burn incense to nullify his magic. What is Islam's view on this and what is the evidence from the Quran and Sunnah?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.


According to the Sunnah, the effects of magic can be nullified by reciting Quranic verses and protecting oneself with legislated supplications, reciting chapters 112 and 113 of the Quran, and the morning and the evening mention of Allaah, and the mention when going to sleep and when waking up from sleep, when entering and leaving the house, and when entering and coming out of the toilet, and other designated supplications. In reality, this is what repels magic.

Apart from this, nothing else is needed or permitted Islamically.

Allaah knows best.
